Garden Museum London Corporate Functions & Events

Situated next to Lambeth Palace, overlooking the River Thames to the Houses of Parliament, the Garden Museum is in a striking location minutes’ walk from three separate London Underground stations. Even more striking is the venue itself. 

Formerly an abandoned medieval church, this venue is now a museum dedicated to the art, history, and design of gardens; its original features have been immaculately restored and contemporary additions of a glass and bronze cloister, along with Dan Pearson-designed garden, make this a venue that will have all your guests talking.

The main event space, the Nave, takes pride of place in the former church, and creates a stunning space for large dinners, parties, or conferences. Outside, the Sackler Garden can be used for small alfresco dinners to treat your team or clients, or for larger drinks receptions. 

For functional daytime events such as breakfast meetings or presentations, the modern Clore Learning Space comes equipped with full AV equipment and boasts views out to the garden.

Venue Testimonials

Garden Museum is amazing venue when it comes to wedding in London. From outside you got beautiful view on the Westminster and Big Ben. Inside you got access to massive hall which on the evening turn to be dance floor. Fabulous place for wedding in London.

Miracle M

The museum has been beautifully integrated into the redundant church building, and its spacious layout allows a certain spirituality to remain. [...] All the staff I spoke to were helpful, above and beyond the usual.

Martin M

Lovely rooms for events and conferences, there is even a kitchen and a modern concept cafe. Beautiful courtyard where the rain garden has been designed by Dan Pearson.
